the gown.
The girl who looked back at her was a

Then witn a lace scarr over ner arm,
Phoebe flew up the road to Mrs. Rogers.
"Are you going to watch the dancing?'
she asked, as she peeped into the shop. i
"Phoebe?" Mrs. Rogers held up her
hands in amazement. "I hardly knew
you, you look twenty years younger."
"I'm going to be young Just for to
night!" "I'll be ready in a minute," said busy
Mrs. Rogers.
Much to Mrs. Rogers surprise, Phoeoe
took a conspicuous seat in the wide cor
ridor of the hotel, leading to the ball
room. The chair that she cnose was a
hitrh carved one, and made a picturesque
setting for her beauty. They could see

causrht her breath. "Do you know that
man?" she asked Mrs. Rogers.
Mrs. Rogers nodded. "He's very rich,
and a bachelor. They say he's engaged to
the girl he's dancing with."
It was the girl with whom he had stood
at Phoebe's gate. She was very hand
some, but there was something hard
about her face.
Phoebe shuddered. "I wonder if he is
really in love with her?"
Mrs. Rogers shrugged. "She has as
much money as he."
Marriage did not have a mercenary
meaning to little Phoebe. The boy she re
membered had believed ln love.
"Oh, let's go home," she said, suddenly.
Mrs. Rogers stared at her in surprise.
"I thought you liked it," she said, "but,
of course, we can go."
Phoebe stood up. The couple she had
been watching stopped dancing, left the
cam? down the r phoei
Mrs Rogers' arm. "Come," st.o
said, "come quickly."
"My dear child, are you ill?" Mrs.
Roerers' tone was aoUcltous.
Phoebe never answered that ues-
1 e man had ,eft the other Woinan

hands in his own."

But there was no friendliness in the eye 3
of the other girl. She knew she had lost
